Becoming a placenta encapsulation specialist!

I'm not a birth professional, but I didn't know where else to post this.
I am taking some online classes to learn how to encapsulate. I was just curious how other people decided to encapsulate, what method of preparation you like best, how it fits into your lifestyle, what the total start-up cost was for you, and what you think is necessary to start practicing. I am looking forward to this chapter in my life! Any advice is appreciated!

I <3 Placenta!

Congrats on starting this phase of your life. I trained with Full Circle, and though I do not recommend them, I learned quite a bit online. So far my costs have been about $400. That includes training, equipment, and some marketing materials. Scour goodwill, fb sale sites and garage sales. I got an awesome bullet and dehydrator for very cheap. Read anything you can, see if you can shadow someone, and don't be afraid to put yourself out there.

Why do you not recommend Full Circle? I'm training with them as well. The class was pretty expensive and the people who run it take forever to get back to you if you have a question. I have moms who are due soon and need me to have my stuff together, and it was frustrating to not be able to get advice on supplies, etc., from the people I paid to mentor me. I've completed all my coursework and just have to encapsulate 3 placentas before being certified. I am very excited though!! My first client is 40 weeks today!!
I have invested about $600 if not more in my supplies and classes!
